Generalist Med Podcast is an homage to the scope of practice in family/general practice. We will be trying to hit big topics so we can get a solid grasp as a learning resource.
GeM 65 Ultrasound Basics ft. Dr Blake MacKay
I'm here with Dr. Blake MacKay to discuss the basics of ultrasound. Blake is a generalist with a strong interest in ultrasound and training through CPoCUS. We discuss ultrasound basics including an array of clinical uses which can help guide management. Motivates me to do more ultrasound!
GeM 64 Psychedelic Medicine ft. Dr Ryan Patchett-Marble

GeM 63 Fever
Let's talk about the hot topic of fever! We'll talk about why we get fevers, whether we should treat them, and different causes of fever including forms of hyperthermia. We'll also touch on special populations such as febrile neutropenia and febrile infants.
GeM 62 Interventional Cardiology ft. Dr Eric Rothstein
I am very excited to discuss Interventional Cardiology with my cousin Eric Rothstein who works at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Centre in New Hampshire. We discuss the field of Interventional as well as some STEMI/Acute Coronary Syndrome insights, with a bit on stable ischemic heart disease and mechanical circulatory support.
GeM 61 Food and Nutrition ft. Dr Larry Willms
I speak to Dr. Larry Willms about a very fundamental topic that doesn't get much discussion in medical learning - Food and Nutrition. We discuss the things that are well-established consensus in the field, why we get so confounded by nutrition research and fads, how to communicate the information to patients as well as some thoughts and ideas we have on the subject!
GeM 60 ER Principles ft. Dr Josh Smith
I am joined by Dr. Josh Smith, an EM registrar in Dunedin, New Zealand, who discusses with me a basic approach to patients in the ER.
We talk about key principles including that patients often require early treatment before we have much information, that a disposition is often more important than a definitive diagnosis and that we should be considering life threatening diagnoses early in our assessment. We also touch on identifying sick patients, how patient scenarios can evolve, and ways to deal with uncertainty in medicine.
Currently in my 3rd year at NOSM and I find your podcasts incredibly helpful! Really appreciate your humour and approach to subjects, especially on long drives around Northern Ontario. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to future episodes! I will continue to recommend your podcasts to as many of my classmates as I can!
